NTIA react to Greater Manchester moving into Tier 3

MUMBAI: Michael Kill CEO NTIA Says: "The announcement today of Greater Manchester going into Tier 3, deepens the crisis for the regions businesses, with growing concerns over the survival of the Hospitality and Night Time Economy sector."

"We support Andy Burnham Mayor of Greater Manchester and the leaders of the major cities across the country in a call for further support from Government and a collaborative effort to save businesses and jobs within the sector. "

"Businesses and workers remain desperate and frustrated, it is clear that without a robust sector specific financial package of support under Tiers 2 & 3, we will see the sector collapse and the loss of over 754,000 jobs."

"Restrictions levied against Night Time Economy businesses are disproportionate, and have no scientific foundation around measures being effective in suppressing the transmission of the virus within these environments."

"Business owners, employees and freelancers within our sector are suffering, this will have a far reaching impact on the future of the industry."
